I love a good falafel – especially one I can make at home with basic pantry staple ingredients.  Falafel has always been a favorite of mine. I remember it was my go-to in college, my roommates and I would hit up the Pita Pit on campus and I’d always get the falafel wrap with plenty of hummus added.  These baked falafel use flaxseed meal to stick together, so they’ll hold their shape while cooking.

These Vegan Baked Falafel Balls Are:

  • Hearty
  • Simple to make
  • Satisfying
  • Perfectly Spiced
  • Earthy
  • High Protein
  • Made with canned chickpeas
  • Vegan, gluten free, vegetarian, and SO good!

Grow Sprouts Indoors for A Nutritious Crunch All Year Long!

I grow my own sprouts all year long on my kitchen counters… and believe me, it couldn’t be easier!  All you need are some sprouting seeds (I like these alfalfa seeds, and these bean sprouts), wide-mouth mason jars, sprouting lids, and some tap water. An endless supply of sprouts will be at your culinary fingertips anytime. I love grabbing a handful of alfalfa sprouts to add to a sandwich or a wrap, or adding a handful of bean sprouts to stir fries or ramen soup. I put together a list of all my favorite sprouting supplies – so you can enjoy fresh sprouts any time!

How Do I Bake Falafel in the Oven?

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and grease with olive oil or cooking spray it desired.  A little oil helps the falafel to crisp while they cook!
  2. Add all the falafel Ingredients to a food processor and pulse for about 15 to 30 seconds to combine. The falafel dough should be chunky still.
  3. Divide dough into 12 sections and roll each into a ball, then smooshing down with your palms to form flat patties.
  4. Place patties on the parchment paper and bake for 30 minutes, flipping halfway.
  5. Remove from oven and enjoy on a pita or wrap, with hummus, pickled veggies, and loads of sprouts!
